I do hope you’ll hop on the gypsy wagon and ride along!
I think the sooner we realize that this country is made up of a multitude of people with wonderful humanitarian values, that don’t necessarily subscribe to Christian based religion; stop labeling ourselves and simply live as good and decent people, the better off this country and the world will be.

Where the singular sound of water on rock washes my man made fears away ~
Tonight I lay with a heavy heart, due to the ugly truths of the world set and seen before me this day. Unconscionable acts of unspeakable cruelty and violence, carried out by fellow human beings who were borne into this world just as I was, just as you were. I ask the questions, over and over; why are these things happening, why are we allowing them to happen, and why aren’t we all actively doing whatever we can to make them stop?!
Are we so jaded and numb to these things that we don’t actually comprehend what we’re seeing, what we’re being shown; that because it’s not affecting us personally from the comfort of our favorite spot in front of the television or computer that we’re ignorant enough to believe that it doesn’t affect us; or are we just too fucking lazy and self-serving to be bothered?!
We each have the ability and I dare say responsibility, to do everything in our power to be the good in the world, to right the wrongs, to stop the insanity, to use our voices to scream at the top of our lungs, to anyone who will listen that Enough is Enough!
We cannot look the other way and just hope the ugly truths magically disappear or expect others to make the changes for us. Life just doesn’t work that way.
Step outside your selves, look around you, find what touches you most deeply, take up the cause, educate your self and get involved, take that first step toward making a change in something you know in your heart needs to be changed, needs to be stopped.
Stop believing that you can’t make a difference, that one lone voice cannot change the world, and know instead that you can, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
We all can.
You frolicked gaily at the masquerade
Swooned like a schoolgirl at a hit parade
Reaching and conversing throughout the day
Thinking to yourself you can do this thing
Clueless to what you’re setting yourself up for
A genius IQ does not smart this one make
It makes him cunning and wickedly dangerous
Numerous casualties left in his wake
Never to be believed
By those who think they know
Having seen only what he wants them to see
Accepting membership to his mutual admiration society
Oh, but those eyes and that innocent charm
You’re dreaming even now of being in his arms
While he claims you’re the only one understands
Sharing his stories of loneliness and pain
This isn’t fate and you haven’t touched his soul
He wants nothing from you but simple validation
If lucky another notch on his bed of four posts
To appease and arouse his manipulating ego
